Appearance has a crucial impact on self-confidence, especially in children. When a child has an injury or congenital issue that causes a facial deformity, it can affect their self-confidence. While most cosmetic surgery is reserved for adults, some plastic surgery can be performed on children to address facial deformities. At Eden Plastic Surgery Institute, our board certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Ali Charafeddine, offers pediatric facial plastic surgery at our medical facility in Miami.
Children are susceptible to teasing and bullying from their peers due to differences in their appearance. While it may be unfair, it is easier for children who look more like other children their age. Kids who have protruding ears, dark facial birthmarks or disfiguring facial scars can be self-conscious of their appearance. Pediatric facial plastic surgery can be a solution to help them feel more confident in their appearance, lessening their burden as they grow up.
